Cocoa-cream pie

You won't believe how easy this pie is to make~

At least the day before, peel and break apart 5 bananas. Freeze overnight. You'll use these in the pie.

Crust ingredients:
1/2 c each: raw almonds, raw pecans
10 dates
3 T maple syrup

Pie ingredients:
5 frozen bananas
1 ripe avocado
4 T raw cocoa
at least 2 T finely ground flax
1/3 c raw sugar

*Have 2-3 extra fresh, ripe bananas to slice into the middle of the pie.

Blend crust ingredients together until finely ground. Press into lightly oiled springform pan.

Now put all pie ingredients into the food processor and blend until very smooth. (Of course, grind your coffee beans and flax in a coffee grinder before adding to the food processor.) Pour half of the blended pie mixture onto the crust in the springform pan.


Now, slice your 2 extra fresh, ripe bananas across the pie.


Then pour the remainder of the pie mixture over the bananas. Cover the bananas completely.


Freeze at least overnight. Do not remove from freezer until you're ready to chow down... and trust me, you will definitely chow down! Just slice and serve!

Store remainder of pie in freezer. When you serve, simply slice and let thaw for up to half hour to soften.


  1. I've just found your blog and love your posts! Thank you for sharing your raw journey. I am just embarking on my own raw journey so its great to see yours and discover amazing raw recipes. This pie looks delicious and I love the sound of the raw toast. Do you have the recipe for that as I'd love to give it a try.... Like your hubby I love my bread! Keep it raw! pumpkin~power x

  2. Thanks so much! I'm fasting now but plan to try more raw recipes, including some breads.

    Though, honestly.. I don't know that I would have the determination to be 100% raw, so if I'm enjoying everything else raw and healthy.. I think bread is okay!
